    Windows Firewall And Advanced Sharing Settings


    Hello. I'm running the latest Windows 10. At the moment I'm running windows firewall. One of the reasons I'm using windows firewall is because in the advanced sharing settings, network discovery and file and printer sharing is turned off in private, guest and public, and all networks. sections. If I use a third party firewall software and turn off windows firewall, those settings are all on except in the all networks section.

    Is my PC vulnerable with network discovery and file and printer sharing on in the private and guest and public section and off in the all networks section?

    P.S. The only reason I'm a little nervous about using windows firewall is because it doesn't pass leak tests.

    :)

  3. Windows Firewall advanced settings not opening

    When I press the "Advanced settings" button on windows firewall a message pops up that says "How do you want to open this .msc file?" I tried opening services.msc to see if it was a firewall problem but that did the same thing. When the message pops up
    I found "Launch Windows app" in the list of apps to open it with and when I click that it says "Class not registered" I looked up how to fix it and I couldn't find a solution. any suggestions?

    Wow. Thanks for nothing. I will never come back to this forum. What a waste of time. Thankfully I found what I was looking for in another forum.
